  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
Like all colleges, it has it's good and it's bad. This is a good college is you want to play sports. The professors and staff are very helpful and you will get a large financial break if you live close to the college.

Olivet College is a small private school that has a simple campus to maneuver through. Any one who attends Olivet will know everyone and the teachers will know you by your first name instead of a number. It is a safe environment for students and the staff will make you feel right at home.
